I have been seeing Dr. Karwowski for about a month for debilitating migraines that occur 4 times a week. I have tried everything from medications to Botox. I finally found her through a friend of mine who has used her serviceswhile pregnant. I am now migraine free. She did everything from chiropractic to acupuncture to viewing my blood work so she could suggest a vitamin protocol. Dr. Karwowski is simple the best. The appointments were never rushed and she always answered all of my questions. Joanna their assistant is great as well. Good job ladies and thank you.

I have seen many chiropractors through out the years, however this visit was one of the best. Dr. Karwowski took the time to explain my conditions and treatment time. I have never been to a chiropractor that has spent over anhour with me. Yes, I came in unable to walk with an assistance from my wife ( hence the lengthy appointment time) the doctor or the staff did not rush us and were very friendly. I also walked out of the first visit on my own ( big plus). I have scheduled dolków up. Istota and am realny looking forward to them.

1. The treatments I've received appeared to be shallow and rushed. Each time I visited, the total time for my treatment never exceeded 20 mins. Even after I provided my feedback about the prior treatments having no positive/beneficial effectsand not aggressive enough to improve my condition, it did not appear that the strength and depth of my treatment had been adjusted accordingly. My condition has never been improved after the sessions. 2. Beware of the terms and conditions that you are required to sign before receiving treatment, which they failed to properly communicate and to make sure the patient was fully aware (e.g. there's a penalty charge for missing an appointment). Instead they would simply push the responsibility to you for not having read every word on the documents.

I would highly recommend Dr. Litwinska. I walked into her office with barely any movement in my neck and shoulder and walked out with my movement restored. Dr. Litwinska was able to isolate the problem and knew exactly how to getrid of the pain. She also recommends rehab and well being and suggested some simple exercises that can be done at home to strengthen the back and neck muscles.

She allowed me to fully explain what was giving mepain and she listened patiently while I expressed my concerns. She is well educated in what she does and explained things clearly. I will definitely be seeing her again.

0 minutes wait time = big bonus points. The space looks and feels more like a spa/salon which is nice. Dr. Litwinksa has great bedside manner & listened carefully as I described my symptoms/pains. No rushing at all. Quick and easyadjustments. She explained her approach and initial plan for me clearly and concisely, incorporating all my preferences and concerns. No complaints here and I'd recommend her to others.

I had just been diagnosed with migraines and I was missing a lot of work. I was about to start a new job and was very concerned about my health. Dr. Litwinska was very kind and helpful.

Dr Maizena was incredibly friendly, thorough, and detailed in all that she did. In all of the years I've been seeing a chiropractor, I've never had such an extensive first appointment where she went through my health history and check range of motion, pain, etc.

Dr. Litwinska is a gem in every way: Kind, thorough, and patient and never pushy. Adjustments are only a part of her treatment plan, but not in a "I'm gonna give you this handout and charge 75 bucks/you have to buymy vitamins" way. She explained her logic and recommendations every step of the way, and I left my first appt. feeling better physically, and feeling very positive that I'm in good hands to remedy my neck/back issues for good...not to mention she's in network with Cigna. Can't speak highly enough.

I've had chronic lower back pain for a very long time. After a few weeks with Dr. Litwinska, I feel better than I have in years. She explains the situation in easy to understand language and helps you find solutions. Twothings really stuck out to me about Dr. Litwinska. First, she seems genuinely concerned about your well-being. Her goal is to improve your health. She isn't there to tack on unnecessary visits or services. Instead, she wants you to FEEL better. This is not the case with all medical providers. Secondly, she is a friendly and pleasant person. She makes you feel instantly comfortable. Going through a long treatment session can seem like it takes forever, but it flys by with her. All in all, I'd highly recommend Dr. Litwinska to anyone.

As with many other issues Dr. Litwinska was able to help me once again this time with reoccurring headache problem. I have been having headaches almost daily for abou three months now. After my first visit I am headache free. Basingit on my past experience with the Doctor I should be back to normal within a week or two. If you are looking for a great chiropractor give Dr. Litwinska a chance and I promise you will NOT be disappointed.

If you're thinking all of these great reviews are fake, they're NOT! I wasn't sure when I read them myself lol, but Dr. Litwinska has excellent bed side manner, she's extremely nice, explains everything to your understanding, and begins treatmentright away. I went to her office with neck and back pain, but left feeling extremely relaxed. If you're looking for a chiropractor, you should definitely give Dr. Martina Litwinska a visit!

Dr. Litwinska was incredibly sweet, smart and just fun to talk to. She makes you feel comfortable, gets to know you and is very easy to talk to. She asked me questions about why I came in, took me through aseries of tests to test my body for trigger points and then thoroughly explained the results of why I'm experiencing these symptoms. She described how my muscular system connected trigger points to various areas and made me feel really educated about the process. I think the best part is not only did she align me well, but she took me through stretches and physical therapy exercises I could do to minimize my pain and symptoms. Overall my experience was extremely uplifting and I now feel like there is hope for me to get better! I feel like she's just the friend you need to help you through a bad patch in your life and get back to normal. :) Highly recommend!

Having a low back pain problem I went to my primary care physician who suggested I go see a chiropractor. After a lengthy research I decided to see Dr. Litwinska. She performed a detailed exam and was able to explain whatthe cause of pain was. She also answered all of the questions I had. I left the office feeling better. Also, I was very impressed when I received a follow up call from the doctor the next day (now days you do not see that due to a busy doctor schedule). Dr. Litwinska is very knowledgeable, friendly, and passionate about her work and patients. I highly recommend her!!!

I came in with an excruciating back pain. Prior to my first visit Easy tasks such as putting on my shoes or walking were very challenging. Dr. Litwinska took her time performing the exam and was able to tell me whatthe cause of the pain was and what we could do to fix it. She answered all of the questions I had. I left the office feeling much better. I highly recommend her.
